One of the greatest gift you can give your children is your love, telling them your life story and helping them to repeat your successes and avoid your mistakes.
Letting go of people or projects we have nurtured can be difficult.
It is both sweet and painful to see your children into adults; our students into teachers; our subordinates into managers; our inspirations into institutions.
But when the time comes, we must step back and let go in spite of the hurt.
Then our offspring can exercise their wings, take flight and soar to the heights that God intended for them.
